FA Cup Final 2001 – Moments In Time: From The Vault
The Anfield Wrap brings you eyewitness accounts of the 2001 FA Cup final between Liverpool and Arsenal at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
This is the third in our series of free audio documentaries in which we travel back in time to tell the story of significant days in the history of Liverpool FC, by tracking down the people who made them happen.
This latest game we look back on is one which is often attributed to one man’s efforts alone, though there were plenty of ups and downs along the way under the beaming hot sun in South Wales.
Telling the story of that day are former Liverpool FC players Sander Westerveld, Stephane Henchoz, Jamie Carragher, Emile Heskey, Gary McAllister, Patrik Berger and (of course) Michael Owen; and the assistant manager at the time, Phil Thompson.
We also speak to the referee on the day, Steve Dunn; journalists Chris Bascombe, Oliver Kay, Amy Lawrence and Clive Tyldesley; and supporters Gareth Roberts, Kevin Walsh and Dan Morgan.
